Good news as the Fiji Government has granted Vodafone Fiji a 5G non-commercial license to operate and undertake rigorous end user tests in the 5G pilot network before a full commercial license is issued later in the year.

Vodafone Fiji confirms it's 5G live user trials will be conducted in select parts of Suva Central Business District and will be further expanded to the greater Suva area in the coming months.

Vodafone Fiji says it is working round the clock to further expand its 5G network and coverage areas for commercial launch.

Vodafone Fiji Chief Executive Officer, Elenoa Biukoto says Vodafone has invested over $100 million to upgrade and enhance its network to be ready for 5G.

She says this investment ensures that the Vodafone network is commercially ready for 5G services.

Biukoto says this significant investment ensures Vodafone remains the leader for inclusive growth and innovation for the general Fijian population and at the same time aid in growing the Fijian economy.

The CEO adds that benefits of 5G are immense.

She says it is significantly faster than 4G, with peak speeds exceeding 1Gbps.

This means faster streaming, gaming, and real-time connectivity.

5G also has lower latency, virtually eliminating lag time, and can support more devices simultaneously, even in crowded areas.

Biukoto says these advantages will enable a variety of applications and services, including IoT, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and smart use cases like smart homes, offices, and cities.

She says for Vodafone customers, 5G will revolutionize the way they experience connectivity.

The Vodafone CEO says faster internet speeds, lower latency, and support for a massive number of connected devices will enhance entertainment, communication, productivity, and lifestyle applications.

She says whether it's streaming high-definition content, enjoying seamless online gaming, or interacting with smart home devices, 5G will provide a superior user experience.

Biukoto says businesses will also benefit significantly from 5G with improved connectivity, faster data transfer speeds, and lower latency which will enable innovative solutions, optimized processes, and improved productivity.

She says from high-quality video conferencing to quick file transfers, 5G will transform the way businesses operate.

The Vodafone Fiji CEO says 5G is not just about faster internet speeds, it is about unlocking new possibilities, transforming industries, and improving lives.

She says Vodafone is committed to bringing the full potential of 5G to Fiji, and they look forward to the exciting future ahead.
